Dynamic Learning

We are a College of creative, caring and inspired teachers who bring our passion to our students in a myriad of ways. We understand that learning must be a vocation and that relevance and love of subject and passion are all keywords in the learning process. Dynamic learning happens intuitively when intellectual rigour, passion, commitment, reflection, strategic planning and foresight all come together at once.

Here at Somerset, we have a commitment to inspired teaching and to fostering a community of dynamic learners, where all types of learning are valued and celebrated. Everyday both in and out of classrooms, our students are challenged and inspired to grow academically and as inquirers, as well as to experience the joy of learning. 

Our programmes at all years are developed to make connections between what students are learning and the world around them, and in doing so our students develop as global citizens through the curriculum and beyond. The authentic contexts through which student's learning takes place develops their critical thinking, their ability to collaborate and communicate and their international mindedness. It strengthens their understanding of their place in the world and their ability to take action and make a difference. Our students have many rich opportunities to develop their beliefs, their passions and communicate these with a wider audience through investigations and projects.   

Dynamic learning centres on authentic opportunities for learning, combined with intellectual rigour and a student centred approach to learning. Our teachers are committed to developing relationships with our students where learning thrives. Our curriculum and environment supports and values academic pursuit. We value curiousity and inquiry. Essential skills in literacy, numeracy, information and communication technology, thinking and creativity, teamwork and communication are integral to all year levels in the College. Through inspired teaching with passionate teachers, our students are engaged in dynamic learning opportunities and achieving personal success. 

We are proudly a three programme International Baccalaureate (IB) school, offering the Primary Years Programme, the Middle Years Programme and the Diploma Programme. We invite you to learn more about these IB programmes and our Queensland Certificate of Education.
